Lawsuits claim doctor held himself out as board-certified surgeon

For one seeking medical or surgical treatment in Queens, the question of whether or not a doctor is board-certified to perform the services that he or she advertises may never even come up. That is likely because most may simply trust that a provider would never dare to attempt procedures that he or she is not authorized to do. Yet it should be remembered that doctors and surgeons (especially those operating out of clinics) are also essentially small business owners. Thus, if they can offer services that might increase their clientele, one may not put it past them to do it (even without the right credentials). 

The recent example of a cosmetic surgery clinic in Nebraska appears to illustrate this point. To date, 15 medical malpractice lawsuits have been filed against the clinic and one of its surgeons by patients who claim to have suffered from errors during procedures that he performed. It has also recently been discovered that the surgeon was never certified by any of the national cosmetic or plastic surgery certification boards. In actuality, he was only board-certified in family medicine. Yet this did not stop him from offering procedures such as liposuction, breast lifts and tummy tucks. The plaintiffs in these lawsuits claim that the provider held himself out the them as a board-certified cosmetic and plastic surgeon. The articles of incorporation submitted when his practice was organized states its purpose was to perform plastic surgeries. The doctor, through his attorneys, denies any wrongdoing. 

It may go without saying that patients place a great deal of trust in their providers. When that trust appears to have been violated, one may understand their desire to hold their doctors accountable. Those seeking to do so may wish to first secure the services of an experienced attorney.
